Tasting Notes

Colour

Rosewood with amber hues.

Aroma

Notes of pecan, maple syrup and toffee.

Palate

Generously flavoured yet stylish and balanced. A fresh, lively finish with elements of praline, toasted nuts and brown spice.

Style

Para Liqueur is one of Seppeltsfield's most recognisable wines, having graced the cellar of generations of fortified collectors. Since its first release in 1953 in its iconic bell-shaped bottle, Para Liqueur has represented all of the hallmark characters of great Australian Tawny. The supreme concentration and complexity of the Liqueur is a result of extended wood aging, giving rise to a silky texture and a delicate balance of sweetness and savoury freshness.

Winemaker's Comments

A hallmark offering from the museum stocks of the Seppeltsfield cellars, the 1992 vintage shows a captivating crème caramel, praline and scorched nut aroma, with a little dusting of cinnamon.

Food Pairing & Peak Drinking

Food Pairing

Enjoy on its own, with aged cheddar or rich dark chocolate.

Technical Information

History

With a proud and priceless legacy dating back to 1851, Seppeltsfield is Australia's iconic wine estate. Seppeltsfield was established by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt just 15 years after the European settlement of South Australia. One of the largest and most modern wineries in the world of its time, Seppeltsfield went on to thrive as an artisan community throughout the early 1900s. Steeped in rich Barossan heritage, the estate is considered a true national treasure which helped shape the history of the Australian wine industry.

As a new dawn rises over Seppeltsfield, our passion is to return the estate to its artisan roots and continue the enduring legacy of the Seppelt family.

Winemaking

Para Liqueur is proudly a single vintage fortified wine, matured in small oak barrels of which are subjected to warm cellaring conditions. This storage plays an important role in the style development of the wine, as the warm environment exacerbates evaporation. An estimated 3% is lost each year to the 'angels share', with the wine continually concentrating in flavour, aroma and viscosity during its maturation in barrel.
